CHICWISH LACE CROSSBACK DRESS

Today I’m sharing this flirty white lace dress that’s as cute from the back as it is from the front! I love lace dresses that have that extra special detail to them and this one wins with the cutest ruffles. I’ve been asked a lot about my experience with shopping at Chicwish and I must say although it takes a while to get your merchandise (~ 2-3 weeks), the quality is surprisingly good for the affordability. This dress is only $56! I would order from them if you aren’t in a rush to get your items but do want something trendy and cute. And you can see where I like to splurge – my handbags :). I’m wearing my favorite Chanel Vanity Bag – it was such a journey to get this bag (I called a billion Chanel stores domestic and international before getting it through the personal shopping department at Saks Fifth Avenue) and I’m clearly obsessed with it.

SPRING OFF THE SHOULDER FLORAL BARDOT DRESS

It looks like the off the shoulder trend isn’t going anywhere and I’m not complaining one bit! I adore off the shoulder styles as they are very flattering for my neckline and I love finding them a variety of styles and prints. This fitted, bardot style dress from ASOS has a gorgeous Spring print and its petite sizing makes the fit perfect for my frame. I love pairing a beautiful print like this with simple, feminine accessories!

M.GEMI SPRING SHOES

Spring is almost here and I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m pretty excited about it! It’s probably my favorite season in terms of weather and fashion. I love the lighter hues and fabrics and not wearing socks lol! I love wearing sandals and heels so these new Spring gems from M.GEMI have me even more excited for the season. I love that it’s a sexy slip on sandal with a unique lace up detailing. The nude/taupe color makes it a perfect Spring staple that will go with just about any look.

OFF THE SHOULDER LACE MIDI DRESS

On today’s post, I’m sharing a very pretty off the shoulder lace dress in the prettiest shade of mauve. This dress is meant to be midi on most average heights (see dress on the model) but on my petite frame, it cuts right at my ankles when I wear heels. It’s kind of a weird spot for the dress to hit but I still think it’s a very flattering dress due to its high waisted seam. I love Spring and I’m looking forward to all of the gorgeous Spring dresses!

SCALLOP BODYCON DRESS

Valentine’s may be over but that doesn’t mean you have to stop searching for gorgeous date night outfits. I love this bodycon dress because although it’s very sexy in cut and shape, I love the feminine touches in the pretty hue and the scallop detailing. Due to its bodycon nature, the dress isn’t as forgiving as others so I made sure to eat a lighter meal before wearing this sexy number! I got a “wow” from the hubs when he saw me in this so I guess he approves ;).

SLEEVELESS & STRIPED

I previously wore this pretty sleeveless trench as a dress with high boots for Fall but here I’m showing how to wear it differently as an outer layer and as a great Spring transition piece. I paired it with one of my closet must-haves – an easy-to-wear striped dress that pretty much goes with anything. I especially love packing this dress when I travel because there are so many ways to wear it. Going into Spring, I’m also wearing a lot of booties and peep-toed shoes as I’m storing some of the bigger boots for next Fall. Here I’m wearing this comfy pair from Naturalizer and if you use my code LNL20 at checkout, you can save 20% off!

YELLOW FLORAL MAXI DRESS

February is halfway here and I can’t believe we are almost transitioning into Spring! To transition to Spring, I’ve been updating my wardrobe with more color and more floral. This yellow floral maxi dress I curated for Morning Lavender is a pretty and perfect transition to Spring! I am obsessed with the bright pop of yellow and the flattering wrap style of the dress. Plus the high-low hem of the dress makes it petite friendly for gals like me ;).

PRETTY BOW DRESS

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with anything with bows so naturally when I found this darling Bow Dress, I was in love! The dress has a flattering fit and flare shape and the low back adds a interesting and adorable detail. This dress is perfect for your Valentine’s date night but also for a fun event or party. It has the right amount of cuteness and fun!

THE PERFECT FRINGE SHAWL

Say hello to the perfect fringe shawl! I’ve been wearing this cozy cardigan everywhere – over a slim black dress like this or paired with my favorite high-waisted jeans and booties. It has the perfect amount of drape, comes in a gorgeous taupe color and looks way more elegant than the price. Note: it’s sold out in size Small (which I’m wearing) BUT I’ve tried on both the size Medium & Large and the main difference in sizes is the length of the back. I almost went with the Large size because I wanted a longer length in the back! Hurry and get yours because they have already sold out in our San Francisco boutique!

I also wanted to take some time today and thank everyone for the support of my boutique business! We recently opened our first Morning Lavender brick-and-mortar boutique in San Francisco so I’ve been commuting back and forth from Orange County on a weekly basis as we staff the store and get things settled! It has been a DREAM and we are overwhelmed with all of the love and support. I haven’t had much time for myself lately, especially to shop so the blog has been a bit slower but I promise to get back to styling some great looks for you all!
